The walls are citrine - which is virtually impossible to see here, so the pictures in some ways don't do the room much justice.
This is the birth announcement Donna cross-stitched. It is PERFECT in his room! Thanks so much, Donna!
I'm in love with this valance - just got it a couple of weeks ago, and I think it looks so good!
Luke's bathroom: This room is so small that it was hard to get the full picture - basically, khaki walls and a (what else?) monkey theme.
This is the best picture I have of the past couple of weeks. Thanks to Honey for his precious new pajamas! I love the look on his face: "GREAT Mom. You've got that stupid camera out again. Can't I just play in peace?"
Everyone have a great week!

Here's a picture of Luke getting his "first shoes" at Nordstrom. It was kind of a sitcom moment - he was silent and angelic in that stroller until the approximately 22 year old kid came out with the shoe sizer. Then Luke just SOBBED. He sobbed when I stood him on the sizer, he sobbed when I tried the shoes on him, and he sobbed for minutes afterward, even with a balloon and a toy. Somehow or another, we did manage to get a nice photo of the occasion... thank goodness! Anyway, if you were at the North East Mall Nordstrom on Saturday and your ears are still ringing, we apologize. And to our sales associate: you fought a good fight, and I wish you nothing but compliant, happy children to fit for prosperity (or at least until the economy improves and you can pursue other gigs).
Have a great week!

Speaking of family - ever have a get-together and realize you didn't get nearly enough pictures? Here this is the side of my family with seven boys ages four and under, and I didn't get one of the boys all together. Darn it! We did manage to get a shot of Luke with his Uncle Johnny. This is a momentous occasion, as the last time Johnny tried to hold Luke (maybe nine months ago...?!? Not sure), Luke sobbed. Both were scarred from the experience for a while, but it looks like they've reunited - and it feels so good...
I have to thank my sister Tara and the other Griffiths for the adorable onesie Luke was sporting at the party. Number one on the front, and, as you saw before, the monkey on the butt. So precious! Our little monkey looks very handsome in it.
...he can push and pull a cooler full of ice and bottled water! So strong! As you might imagine, Luke was so proud of himself.

- Length: 31.5 inches long/90th percentile (he was 21.5 inches when he was born)
- Noggin: 18.5 inches around/50th percentile (14.5 inches at birth)
- Weight: 22 lbs 8 oz/50th percentile (9 lbs at birth)
So same percentages as usual, and Luke is tall and "skinny." (I use ironic quotation marks because this boy has some big ole thighs. Does that mean I'm "skinny" too? Hee hee.) But to put things in perspective, here's this little guy a year ago today:
Wow. Just... wow.
Luke was a very good boy at the doctor. Did he cry? Oh yes... poor little angel got four shots. But the second he got in his carseat, he had a nice little power nap. And we're about to snuggle so he can settle down into a niiiiice longer nap this afternoon. I can hope, right?
That's all for now, but stay tuned all weekend for birthday soiree pictures! Party 1 of 2 takes place tomorrow, so look for pictures in the next couple of days. Enjoy your holiday weekend, everyone!
